The Not-So Futuristic Future

I don’t know why but I really didn’t think I’d still be alive at this point.

Perhaps I thought I’d be a famous artist of some sort whose life had been tragically cut short. I had some dark thoughts as a teenager (but who doesn’t?)

I thought I knew everything back then. I’m sure glad that I was wrong, at least on some points anyway.

But here it is 2010 and nothing is like how I imagined it would be when I was a child.

To me, anything in the 2000’s was supposed to be the glorious future. And now here we are in the second decade of the 21st Century and . . .

Where’s my personal robot?

Where’s my hoverboard?

Where are the elevated cities and flying personal spacecrafts?

Of course, the truth is I don’t really need any of these things. I have everything in life I need to build a great year. I’m really looking forward to this year. I think 2010 is going to be great.

Here’s wishing you all the best in the New Year and New Decade!
